Watch the Feelin' Fine online guitar lesson by Brooks Robertson from Essentials: Boom-Chick Fingerstyle Etudes

"Feelin' Fine" is another original I composed specifically for this Essentials course. It has a very nice feel, with a rather bright, happy-go-lucky melody and chord progression. There is a lot of harmonic movement throughout the song, or in other words, the chords change often (2 beats each chord for the most part), so you're usually not staying on any one chord for too long.

The concept I use very often when writing tunes like this one is utilizing a motif within the melody, then applying that same motif across various chords. This usually succeeds in surprising the listener and keeping their attention. This arrangement is in the key of A major, again using the traditional alternating bass boom-chick style techniques with heavy use of bass string muffling.
